A "Swear ofT' that Stuck.
Exactly twenty years ago on Mon
day, December C, George T. Farris,
now state senator-elect, then a young
man, with a bottle of whisky and a
six-shooter as his companions, at
tended the famous temperance revival
held in the Richmond courthouse by
the noted lecturer, Wenzell, says the
Richmond Climax. Among the four
hundred people who went forward and
signed the pledge was this same George
Farris, armed and equipped as above
mentioned. And to this hour and
minute he has never violated the oath
he took, and never parts with the
card which he signed on that Decem
ber night in 1S77. Not only has he
successfully battled tho temptation to
drink strong intoxicants, whisky,
wine, etc, but such harmless (?) bev
erages as beer and c'der have never"
since touched his lips.
The Fike Question.
The committee sent to Frankfort
appeared before the Sinking Fund
Commissioners on last Friday and of
fered them S14.003 for their interest in
the Lexington road lying in Garrard
county, which was refused. The fol
lowing roads have been bought at the
committee's estimate : Hiattsvillc and
Kirksville, SjOO; Buckeye, S'2,397; Spil
man road, $753; Poor Ridge, S500; Mt.
Hebron, ireej Bnena Vista, $500. The
other companies iu the county refused
the offers made, as estimated by the
committee, and have replaced their
gates. Only one road, so far, the
Richmond, has applied for guards.and
the County Judge furnished two for
each gate. It is hard to tell now, just
what will be done. The court relies
upon its committee's estimate as being
perfectly reasonable as to prices for
the roads, and the stockholders say
nay. So there's the situation in a nut
shell. The Record hopes that every
thing will be amicably settled, and
that, too, soon.
L.vtek. Since the above was put in
type, a committee from the Lexington
road came in this (Thursday) afternoon
and told the court that they were per
fectly willing to meet the county half
way and do what would be the right
thing by all concerned. We are in
formed by one who ought to know
that the indications are very strong
that the deal for this pike will be
closed tomorrow. As individual stock
holders own the controlling interest,
their say will knock the high mogul
sinking fund commissioners at Frank
fort east, west and crooked. So, you
see, later developments throw a much
brighter light on the subject
The local Masonic lodge enjoyed a
fine goose supper a few nights since.
The fowls were prepared under the
kind supervision of Mrs. J. Joseph,
whose reputation for getting up excel'
lend and dainty dishes caused the
brethren to await impatiently for the

Death ofJilss Luclle AVelsIger.
One of the saddest deaths in Lancas
ter for some time, was that of Miss
Lucile Weisiger, which occurred Sun
day night at 10 o'clock. She had suff
ered for several months with throat
trouble and was confined to her bed
for some weeks. She would have been
sixteen years old next April, and was
an unusually bright and intelligent
girl. She was an active member of
the Presbyterian church and took a
leading part in the Christian Endeav
or and Sunday School. Her beautiful
life should be an example for otherr.
Appropriate funeral services were con
ducted at the family resilence Tues
day morning by Rev's. J. C. Randolph
of her father, the late CoL Joe Weisi
ger, in the Danville Cemetery. An ap
propriate tribute will ba prepared by
the Christian Endeavor society and
appear in next issue of The Record.
In the morning of her life the sun
went down and yet, not until her work
was done. The fiowcr was too beauti
ful and fragrant for earth's gardens.
and the tender fingers of Providence
plucked it and transplanted it above
with "the rose of Sharon and the lilly
of the valleys." The loss to church,
home, mother and friends is irrepara-
oie, and yet God's holy will is best.
What a blessing her life has been to
us all, short, yet it has by it's gentle
ness been indelibly stamped on our
minus ana Hearts and the influence of
such a lovely life will never die and
never cease to draw heavenward. She
being dead yet speaketh."
"She id not dead, the child of our affection,
But gone Into that school
Where she no longer needs our poor protec
tion. But Christ Himself doth rule.
In that great cloister's stillness and seclu
sion, By gnunllan angels led.
Safe from temptation, safe from sin's pollu
tion. She lives whom we call dead."
She spent her last hours in prayer
and telling of Jesus "mitrhtv to save."
And those present will never forget it
or she seemed so close to her Savior
that the death chamber was robbed of
its gloom, and brightened by a smile
from the little saint's face. It was
her desire to get well to tika care of
her mother, but was alwa3s submis
sive to Uods will. And just before
she left us, she poured out her spirit
in prayer to the "Lord Jesus to come
quickly" and at 10 o'clock her prayer
was answered for the Great Shepherd
bore the gentle spirit of the lamb in
His own bosom to the foi l above.
"She hath escape 1 all danger now.
Her pain and nghting ail are tied ;
The crown or joy is on her brow.
Eternal glories o'er her shed."

A New Form of Personalities.
The old style of portraying famous
people through a "sketch" of "biogra
phy" is to be modernized in a he Li-
dirs Home Journal during 1S9& Five
of the most prominent Americans have
been ehosen for the departure: Presi
dent McKinley, Mrs. Cleveland, Mark
Twain, Jcseph Jefferson, and Thomas
A. Edison. Each will have a special
article, which will consist of about
fifteen or twenty fresh, unpublished
stories and anecdotes strung together,
each anecdote showing some charac
teristic trail of presenting a different
side of the subjeot. Tho idea is to show
famous personalities through their
own doings and sayings, and to make
these articles accurate tho relatives
and closest personal friends of the sub
jects have assisted and given to the
Journal the best stories and anecdotes
within their own knowledge. Eaeh
article will thus represent the .closest

I had not thought that the boarding

this fatal complaint, which can gen

elementary arithmetic of the grocer's

more than four hired girls when the
